    Question Pumping less than normal

    I pump 3X a day at work. (Typically every 2.5 - 3 hours). Normally, I get a total of about 15 ounces in those 3 sessions. All of a sudden the last couple days, I am getting almost 5 ounces less. Yesterday, I was only able to get about a half ounce from one side at my last pumping session.

    Is this normal? Should I be worried that my supply is going to drop more?

    My son is 7 months and has been eating the same as always...

    Right around the 7 month mark, I had a dry spell. One day I was lucky to get 5 oz. It corresponded with me losing some weight, that's all I could think of. But after a few days, I started pumping more again. I just pumped lots and lots over the weekend to try and build up my supply and to get an extra bottle or two for the next week. I was so panicked, but it worked out OK. Good luck!!!
